look at how corporate america has lined their pockets. let's start at the top. the president got nearly a million dollars in campaign contributions from goldman sachs. that would be the same goldman sachs that the government is now accusing of civil fraud tied to those subprime mortgage invest innocents. federal law prohibits a company from giving directly to an election campaign, so the money came from goldman's political action committee and its employees. the $1 million represents the president's second largest contributor. and these donations from wall street's top investment bank to mr. obama were more than four times the amount they gave to john mccain. but in light of these allegations against goldman and, as mr. obama and the democrats push hard for financial reform, maybe the president ought to consider returning this money. as a candidate, you'll recall, barack obama made lots of lofty promises about not being beholden to special interests. well, here's a chance to prove he meant what he said. of course, it's not just the president. records show in the 2008 election campaign,
